Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Family Vacation – Everything You Need To Know

I’m currently in Disney World at a press event and soaking in as much information as I can. The one post I had to get LIVE ASAP is this one because… OMG YEOW. 

You can book your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser in 2021… estimated. That is what we’ve been told. No specifics on what exact month. Just 2021. But guess what? I’m super excited because it’s a lot closer than I originally thought!

If you are a West Coast mom wondering if there are any plans for Disneyland in California to have a similar build, sorry to say that we did not discuss that option last night. But stay tuned because who knows?

How Will Our Disney Family Vacation Work?

Ok, I need you to picture this! You actually will check-in curbside and then enter through the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal (pictured above). So, basically, the Star Wars party begins from the moment you exit your vehicle. Don’t you just love that?


Then, you and your family will head into “an exclusive launch pod for travel up to the Halcyon, your starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away.” If you look out the viewports, you should be able to watch as you travel through space and approach your ship!

What To Expect For The Next Two Days

Here’s the beauty of the entire experience – while onboard, guests will be able to become the heroes of their own stories.

For 2 days and 2 nights, you will live on the Star Cruiser with the other people who have checked-in during your timeslot and you will truly do everything together as if you were all living together on a spaceship. 

But you will not be alone! Get ready to interact with alien crew members and droids! You are in outer space, after all. 

And speaking of outer space, every window will showcase the world beyond the world. You will truly be DIPPED into another moment of time. There won’t be trees and traffic outside of your hotel window. Oh no! It will look more like meteor shows and burning stars.

Lightsaber Training Sign Up

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida isn’t all about relaxing and fine dining. So, don’t get too comfortable. We still have to train our recruits and have them ready for the unexpected!

Disney will invite guests aboard the Halcyon – a starcruiser known throughout the galaxy for its impeccable service and exotic destinations – to wield a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote

AND PS – adults and children are both encouraged to sign up together. So, mom and dad, that means YOU!

Tour The Bridge And Get Into A Space Battle 

While exploring with your family, be sure to visit the Bridge and learn how to use the controls. The alien crew is more than happy to give out a free lesson or two. But watch out! More often than not, a violent enemy creeps up out of nowhere and they usually get all hands on deck to help take them down. 

Space battles are encouraged daily. Come with your game face on. 

Secret Locations And Meetings

On the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser,  there are secret locations and hiding spots all over the place. That’s why every visit is different and unique. Will you be able to find them all? Who knows who (or what?) you will find waiting for you!

Visiting Batuu During Your Star Wars Vacation

I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not, but the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is actually conveniently located right next to Galaxy’s Edge. And there’s a very good reason for that. 

As part of your stay, you and your family will board a transport ship specifically designed to take you to Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu

So, you will get to visit Galaxy’s Edge during your stay on board Halcyon – without ever breaking the story that you are in. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Don’t forget to grab some blue milk while you are on planet.

Don’t Forget This One Key Factor About Your Star Wars Vacation 

The choices you make during your adventure will help determine how your Star Wars story progresses. So, if you are someone who really wants to stay in your room and look at the stars, then cool! But no secret surprises or side stories will pop up for you. 

If you are all about trying to open up every door you see, talk to every character that passes by, sign up for every opp that comes your way – then odds are you will have a richer experience during your stay. But in the end, the choice is yours! 

However you’d like to travel through the galaxy is up to you! Either way, PLEASE TAKE ME WITH YOU OMG.  For more information, visit

So, Star Wars fans – are you as excited as I am after hearing all about these tremendous offerings? I mean, I have been WAITING for this kind of family travel experience to come into play FOREVER. I LOVE roleplaying video games and to be able to fully DIP myself into an actual scene is going to feel indescribable. 

Disney always knows how to raise the bar when it comes to family travel experiences and memory-making. This is a once in a lifetime journey for sure.

I am not even a Star Wars fan but this sounds so outstanding. I can't wait to hear more from you when you return back to this planet! All jokes aside, this sounds outstanding and I love the interactive experience idea. OH and the fine dining sounds pretty awesome too. Sign the Diaz Gang up for an intergalactic journey!
